There have been a ton of these fake listings on Amazon the past few months. Be wary of super low prices + "just launched"

Probably. Could also be mistakenly listing Wii U pro controllers? How easy is it to have Amazon sort things out if this end up being an absurd knockoff?

So what happens when these sellers don't deliver? Do you get a refund or something?

Amazon is pretty good about refunding purchases after you file a claim.

THIS IS A SCAM. These are "just launched" fake sellers. They mark it as shipped and get paid by Amazon before the long arrival time that their slow shipping has. They don't add a tracking number and you never get the item. You can't file your a2z for a certain time too, so the seller is long gone by that time. You get your money back eventually, but you have to start the cliam, wait for the seller response and then file the final part of the claim. You can tell this is a scam because these all/a lot of their other items are super cheap too!!! You may say it's worth the risk because there's no financial risk, but the scammers also get all your info so get ready for more spam on your Amazon email... :)

Wow people actually do fall for these.

This has literally been happening for months, and it's still making people even ask. A sucker is born everyday...

I will say I got one off eBay for $16 bucks shipped from Japan last month but it was a miss price but they still sent it then changed their price to like $109 bucks for the listing after that. I swore it was gonna be just a empty box once it shipped but no it came an works perfect

That's too low to be real. I've been burned by Amazon resellers that are brand new. Amazon always refunds the money, but it's a hassle. I did find a pro controller at goodwill a few weeks ago. No idea how that made it there. They were pretty much sold out everywhere.

Fake and I'm shocked that Amazon hasn't put up stricter limitations on sellers yet.

 

There are lots of scam listings right now for Switch peripherals and games.

Maybe they were, a few months back. Now? Every GS/BB/Target I've been to in my area carries at least two. Chicago btw.
